From the 60's to the 80's something special was happening. Films were being made, real films. Films made based on a directors vision and not a big studios bottom line. These films splashed and sometimes splattered across stained silver screens everywhere. If you were in the east coast you had grindhouse, if you were in the west coast you had drive-ins and the movies that un-spooled at these places were often magical, sometimes controversial and always entertaining. Later film was traded for video and SOV evolved, and the silver screen was traded for the tube TV. Even though those storefront theatres, dingy drive-ins and CRT TV's are gone now, their spirit lives on at Film Trauma.

Every year movies are made that the public will never see. Their content and tone considered too extreme. We are dedicated to bringing you those films that otherwise would be lost. These films will be presented uncut restored and loaded with as many extras as we can pack on.

Your feedback is encouraged. Let us know what you think, were eager to hear from you.
